Welcoming lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer (LGBTQ) people and families into programs and services can mean taking practical steps such as redesigning intake forms, putting up posters, or incorporating books that reflect diversity. It can also mean deepening your understanding of how assumptions about gender, sexuality, and family composition shape your everyday practice.
In this online webinar, trainer Rachel Epstein will explore what it means to effectively work with LGBTQ families, addressing issues for those working with families from preconception to preschool. In this training you will:
- Clarify commonly-used terms, definitions, and language related to LGBTQ identities & communities
- Reflect on common barriers to effective work with LGBTQ families
- Develop awareness of particular challenges facing LGBTQ parents and their children
- Explore practical suggestions for making programs & services more accessible and welcoming to LGBTQ people
Rachel Epstein (PhD) is a LGBTQ parenting activist, educator and researcher.
